Whether you are serious scholar, a devotee of naval history, or just like a good book, Sloop of War does not disappoint. The amount of research done by author Ian McLaughlan and Derek Andrews, to whom the book is dedicated, is simply astounding. Inspired by a feeling that the literature was lacking on this unappreciated class of sailing ship, McLaughlan made it his mission to give the sloop its due.
